I have found myself in quite the pickle. I have the chance to go travel again for the holidays this year and I have no idea where to go. I have to admit that as of September this year, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to hit my goal of 30 countries by my 30th birthday because with the new job, I have a new vacation day limits. Unfortunately, my previous company had great vacation policies and my new company is in a new industry and so my vacation days have been cut in half. Yup. Half.
I’ve had the chance to have the “manufacturing” holiday for the last few years and it’s been one of the greatest perks of working in the manufacturing world. You see, a large portion of the transportation industry will shut down between Christmas and New Year’s which is absolutely amazing. But now that I’ve left to go to a new industry and I’m brand new at my company, my ability to do actually have a high number of vacation days is minimal.
But luckily I have had the chance now to use up some of the vacation time, and working virtually so now it’s time for me to plan.
If I am lucky, I may be able to spend the four weeks on another continent. Now the hard part is trying to figure out where that’s going to be and whether I can make it work. Time to start the plotting…
